Known from ‘The Sing-Off’
VoicePlay won hearts when the five-member a cappella group competed in the fourth season of NBC’s “The Sing-Off.” The group, which is based in Orlando, Florida, got its start as a street corner barbershop act and has since evolved into an internationally acclaimed touring sensation and video entertainment band. They have over 475,000 subscribers to their YouTube channel alone, with some of their videos racking up millions of views. Their Moana Medley featuring Broadway star Rachel Potter has gotten 21 million views in just a year.
‘Creating music with just the human voice’
The cast of VoicePlay has taken the timeless sound of vocal music and turned it completely on its head. Re-imagined as a full stage show, powerful, humorous and vertigo-inducing harmonies pepper VoicePlay’s music-without-music sound as it ping-pongs between eras and styles, channeling the breadth of the musical landscape and lacing it with inventive and often hilarious on-stage theatrics.
“There’s something magical about creating music with just the human voice,” said Geoff Castellucci who sings bass for VoicePlay in a press release.
During the show, hear the group sing everything from Journey, Panic At The Disco!, Queen, Hamilton, Disney, Twenty One Pilots, Johnny Cash and so much more. The show is family friendly and engaging for people of all ages.
Session 2 of the three-part series focuses on finding a publisher and making sure it’s a good fit.
